Leicester Tigers have agreed a new deal with outside-back Jordan Olowofela.

The Tigers Academy graduate has made 39 appearances since making his senior debut in 2017.

Olowofela represented England at Under-20s level in 2018, playing a starring role in the run to the Junior World Cup Final.

The 22-year-old, capable of playing at centre, full-back or on the wing, has scored six senior tries.

Speaking about the renewed deal, Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy said: “Jordan has come on leaps and bounds in recent seasons and still has plenty of growth in his game.

“It’s exciting to think about what is still to come from him and we are pleased it will be with us at Leicester Tigers.

“Jordan understands Tigers, having come through the club, and is committed to what we are building.

“With this new deal, he has got an opportunity to go on with it now and become a consistent performer in the senior side here in Leicester.”
